Chauncey. Bertha. Edna. Gertrude. These are only a handful of the names that recently appeared on Strollerderby‘s list of the 50 Ugliest Baby Names, which was compiled using the Twitter trending topic hashtag #uglybabynames.
Some of the names on the list came as a surprise, like Rosie, Nigel and Arthur (didn’t Selma Blair name her wee babe Arthur as a way to balance his potential for future homeliness? This poor kid can’t catch a break!). Others seemed more odd than ugly (we’re looking at you, Sausagea and Uvula). And yes, Nevaeh also made the Top 50 (we’re starting to think that this name just makes its way onto every baby name list, no matter what it’s about).
What’s the ugliest baby name that you’ve ever heard?
